Why Is Your Screen Protector So Fragile? The Truth About Glass Quality

The Reality of Soda-Lime Glass in Mobile Accessories

In the vast sea of mobile accessories, 90% of brands opt for soda-lime glass, the most cost-effective yet common glass used today. It dominates about 90% of the global glass production. However, the trade-off is its fragility—it easily succumbs to breakage from hard impacts or uneven pressure, features poor heat resistance, cannot be strengthened, and suffers from low light transmittance that significantly dims the user experience.

The market is flooded with products crafted from soda-lime glass, often wrapped in attractive packaging that masks their inferior quality. This not only misleads consumers but also makes these screen protectors less durable, necessitating frequent replacements—a needless drain on time and resources.

The Exceptional Choice: Medium and High Alumina Glass

A mere 1% of conscientious manufacturers choose to go the extra mile by using medium and high alumina glass—defined as glass with an alumina content higher than 6%. While this glass meets the scratch-resistant requirements essential for touch screens, its toughness levels are not ideal, and its edges are prone to chipping. Typically, only premium brand suppliers that collaborate directly with iPhone stores opt for this material, which can lead to exorbitant prices that deter the average consumer.
